Album Artwork and Promotional Materials for LAURA PEÑATE X REI LOW EP on WEBELOTRAX 🔊

Loved working with the artists on this one, utilizing some drafts and photography they already had, I extrapolated on the concept - eventually creating these visuals along with a short story for the album! ✨

Year 2248. You find yourself cruising down a freeway surrounded by a sharp and desolate landscape. Boarders and boundaries have dissolved as humanity finds itself part of a global cyber-system. As you awake in the backseat, attempting to shake off the holo-drugs that were supposed to knock you out for the whole trip - sounds begin to swirl into focus....

Your android ride-share operator - a sort-of Artificial Intelligence meant to provide humans with a bit of comfort on long journeys - has the radio blasting full-tilt. From the strained speakers of the hover-cab, dense and delicious drums dance and thump - combined with robust synths both brooding and flourishing - powering the frantic yet steady pace of the cyborg driver. You hear the driver begin to sing along in its synthetic voice, layering onto the already hypnotic vocals instilling a surreal feeling as you rest on your back across the seats. The atmosphere...the sound waves...the partially worn of downers from the night before - flowing together like an orange neon haze as you glide through the purple night....

For the brief time you are lucid - you await the auto-announcers identification of the sounds you've been hearing. You can feel the drugs taking hold once again - having granted you only temporary release from your stasis before falling back into coerced paralysis. You struggle to speak up - surely the singing cyborg would know! As words escape your mouth, they stumble and blur together in a noisy haze, disappearing into the crisp air of the night as the cab's rear window rolls down automatically. You feel the stinging drizzle of acid rain on your forehead as the hover-car zips along towards its destination, passing under the stale fluorescent streetlights in perfect sync with the beautiful rhythms....


"Rei Low's production style for the EP reminded me of a lot of an updated version of New Wave and Dark Wave music that I have been recently inspired by, so that encouraged me to draw on inspiration from artists like Drab Majesty and Ladytron who's music is reminiscent of that time." - Laura Peñate
